who did not get a break just because they're not white in america. the great thing about america is you do not to be white or even born here, you just have to want it. if you want it, and that is what we all -- [inaudible] we see the system is not fair. obama has promised more transparency. we have seen things that have made our blood curdle. >> i apologize for cutting you off, but the reception is getting to bed. thank you for your time this morning. from salt lake city, another democrat. caeliacelia. >> i have a few comments. i am hispanic voter. i'm 44 years old. have three beautiful children. and they will also be voters. but i have a question. the thing that really concerns me is immigration. i am worried about that. that is something that really needs to be taking care of, immigration reform. they need to do something to help these people to contribute to society, to pay taxes the way i do. i pay lots of taxes from every paycheck that i work so hard for. i think immigration should also give some kind of, you know, benefits to those people to pay taxes and contribute to soci
the pain and wondering, where is america's outrage? where's america's concern that we're still at war? my question is, mr. speaker, why is the house of representatives still supporting a war that costs $10 billion a month? this money is borrowed primarily from the chinese. all we hear about is this financial cliff, this crisis that's facing america. my question is after 11 years, where's the outrage from congress for our men and women in uniform dying in afghanistan? 2014 is the date that the president has said we will start bringing the troops out. that is 25 more months. why do we have to wait until the end of 2014 to start bringing our troops home? how many more have to die at the hands of the very afghans they're training? october 14 "new york times" editorial titled "time to pack up," has a subtitle that says it best -- "it should not take two more years for the united states to leave afghanistan." mr. speaker, i have a petition on my website, the website is jones.house..gov. i'm asking people around this country to please sign this petition with the name and state, nothing else, who
education the vast majority of what we do in america k-12 higher education is done by public institutions. it's done by public institutions that are run by states. a lot of other work including most charter schools are nonprofits or famous institutions like stanford and harvard and yale and princeton. and then, however, there's a substantial swath of activity that is for-profits, both for-profits that run schools or colleges. there is also for-profits that sell everything from pencils to paper to textbooks, to curricula, to professional development and school systems and universities and colleges. we don't often think about that. we don't often think about what the upsides, what are the downsides, how does that play out and that's what we really want to get into today. for instance, just recently our friends at parent revolution said, you know, when thinking about the parent trigger that we, you know, there's a need to regulate. we need to think about where to draw the lines and what kind of operators to permit, they choose not to encourage, for-profits be permitted to participate because
you very much and i look forward to questions. >> thank you. for those who believe that america is founded is the greatest country in the history of the world, we wanted someone who would fight for us. we wanted a fighter like ronald reagan who boldly championed america opposing founding principles who inspired millions of independence and reagan democrats to join us and who fought his leftist opponents on the -- idea that america was a shining city upon a hill. what we got was a week moderate candidate handpicked by the beltway elite and country club establishment wing of the republican party. the presidential loss is unequivocally on them. with a catastrophic loss, the tea party is the last best hope america has to restore her founding principles. while it may take longer to restore with president, back in office we're not going away. it took nearly 100 years to take america to the place where we are today. it will take more than 3 1/2 years to restore our constitution. we're going to keep fighting. we respect the constitution and we now that for america to succeed, we need to
with america's march of freedom. one does not. i want our president to be on the right side of history. one sees climate change as an urgent problem. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics. well said by a savvy mayor of new york. he is so smart. >> the guy is very savvy. >> he waited until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he may be the ultimate lagging indicator in that mayor bloomberg is a cautious guy politically. he's always looking out for mayor bloomberg, and there's nothing wrong with that. politicians always look out for their own best interests first. that's the nature of being an ambitious pol, but would he have done this if he thought obama was going to lose? >> that's an indicator of the public. >> that's my question. i don't know. >> by the way, the late brilliant jack jarvis -- somebody once say when that ball comes down on new year's eve, or just at midnight when it starts to come down, that's how he would come down on an issue. you know the decision had been made. here i giv
affairs centers in d.c. that i would not normally be exposed to. >> c-span, treated by america's cable companies in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> president obama won reelection with 303 electoral votes with florida's 29 still undetermined and over 50% of the popular vote. the national journal hosted several panel discussions breaking down the road to results and looking at the implications for national politics and the congressional agenda. >> it turned out not to be as long night as people expected and we're going to talk about that today and why and look forward to how the president to make go forward from this victory which think is safe to say it was quicker and bigger than many people expected. would you like to tell us how this happened and -- why this happened and how? >> it was bigger than we expected. he really swept the battleground states. the only states that he lost that he had won in 2008, was north carolina which he had won by 14,000 votes in 2008. it was considered a fluke. what that tells us is that the set of assumptions that
to insulate themselves within the one america. >> conventions of the same feeling as well. >> i do not think he will see a democratic leadership of the house ever again that does not include at least one woman and one african-american and latino. where as republicans, they need a lot more than -- they really need to put out a different face, an image in order to compete more broadly. >> sometimes the evidence for interesting voices that do not -- >> one other dimension of this -- at the end of the day, mitt romney got 20% of the total electoral votes available outside of the south. that happened in 1992. that is the smallest share of the electoral votes. the demographic challenge is also a geographical challenges. because of these places we have more cosmopolitan and secular populations that are diverse on the coasts. >> they have all the mountains and the farm states. that's it. >> one last question and we will wrap up. >> thank you. i am an independent consultant. i want to go back to the aid groups and talk about the contrast and the complex between the boomers and millennia ills, particu
before america votes, we are about to get the last pre-election numbers on jobs in our economy. >> i got nothing left. memories or anything else. everything is ruined. ruined. >> survivors of hurricane sandy still waiting for help. they are worrying about the future. good morning to you. welcome to "early start." >> it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. we are going begin with a sprint to the finish line. the last major hurdle in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the un
for the united states of america. >> four days after a natural disaster struck the eastern seaboard, crippling a global metropolis, gutting infrastructure, leaving more than 90 dead and millions without power, donald trump, a lunatic birther disguised as real estate mogul has issued a proclamation from the 856th floor of his luxury apartment where he nests atop the city recovering from destruction and one day his message is, people will say donald trump is right. this is a very sad day for the united states of america. might i humbly offer a rejoineder. when offered $5 million for the services of trash collection intended to undermine the reputation of the president of the united states, no one took you up on it. no one. not even the craziest of the crazies. and that, mr. trump, was a very, very good day for the united states of america. >>> coming up, will next wednesday mark a new post-partisan era or another big ugly partisan hangover? we will look at what this election portends, forgetting anything actually -- for getting anything actually done, next on "now." a winter wonderland doesn't j
-elected because we're socialist and week on terism and we're not honest and tt's not how most of america cease the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully understand the impact it played in the election but i know it played a deep impact. and listen, as i said, our party has gone through that before which was a disbelief that president bush could be re-elected in 2004. people saw it differently. >> i think there are a number of legitimate policy criticisms of president obama. and there are issue that is he's advanced in the country that i just disagree with. however, if you go back to mitt romney's book, what was the title. no apology. inferring that the president runs around the world apologizing for america. not true. that never happened. the birther nonsense t. attempts to delegitimate mies the president that he wasn't born in hawaii, that he is on alien impter in the oval of
where morgan freeman is lending his voice to an ad for marriage equality. >> america's stands at the dawn of a new day. freedom, justice, and human dignity always guided our journey towards a more perfect union. now across our country we're standing together for the right of gay and lesbian americans to marry the person they love. >> campaign workers are complaining about linda mcmahon. staffers said they got check that is bounced off working for the failed senate candidate and they say replacement checks were issued. mcmahon spent $100 million on her two campaigns. this past weekend a small fire broke out at the state component. a couple of maintenance workers were taken to the hospital and staff evacuated and things were back to normal quickly. the state department says the fire appears accidental. president obama bought a few books on small business saturday. he took his daughters to the one more page book store in arlington, virginia, and the commander in chief purchased 15 books, gifts for family members for christmas. >>> we are waiting for our first glimpse of the capit
-- i should say north america, our backyard, and that is what is happening in venezuela. there you have the election of chavez. it was a free and fair election. you have a leader who is not fitting in the category you just mentioned, but someone who basically has used elections in non-democratic ways. he is elected in but then takes seriously non-democratic measures internally. that is a very difficult situation to grapple with in terms of fundamentalists. >> from my european point of view, the so-called unipolar moment has led us in nato, led the west, led the united states, in my view, to over emphasize the possible use of the military. i think over the last decade we have been forced to acknowledge the fact the obligation of military force tends to solve, at best, military challenges, but if he were faced with a political problem, you need a political solution, which means more than just the military. that appears to me to be a growing consensus in our community. and that leads me to the first question about what the gentleman over there asked about development and the military. as a
a vision for where america needs to be in this new century where we've got rising competition in china and germany and india and if we're going to have an american century we cannot come in second place to those countries in technology of the future. and i think that played an important role. there was a sense that the obama vision was one that they thought better suited this moment in our country's history. and there is no question on social issues whether it's women's healthcare or immigration. there was asset of issues that for younger voters was important to think about the kind of country and kind of president they wanted representing them. so on all those questions people wrestled carefully. i think that's why ultimately enough people in enough battleground states chose the president to continue this journey we're on. quickly in terms of demoggrafi. we don't know this for sure but we could be seeing different elections in on years and off years. the election in 2014 is going to be different than presidential lecktorts. and the comments i made were predicated on what we thought wo
they are going to represent the united states of america as the united states of america is, and not based on some 50-year-old model. >> operator, last question, please. >> in 2008, after the election, you famously left open offices across the country to keep your round game intact. what happens to that infrastructure now, and the think the ground game in the infrastructure you have for this campaign can be translated to whoever runs in 2016? >> thank you for the question. as we talked about earlier, we will go for a process with our supporters and have a conversation with them about what they want to do next. we have always listened to the ground game, listen to our supporters. part of the lesson of 2012 for us is let people run the kind of campaign they believe in. that is why the president's message resonate so well out there. we will have a process for our folks where we discuss the future. we will spend some time learning the lessons from the other night before we start thinking about 2014 or 2016. >> first of all, we are going to take our cues from our supporters, things got done bec
. we shouldn't rule out the entire range of potential terrorist attacks and what would do to america's relations and to america's set of priorities in the middle east taking down an airplane blowing of the series of embassies and attacking civilians, foreign governments as was tried in washington with the attack on the saudi ambassador and the foreign governments using terrorism even on our soil. it is a whole range of possibilities. let's not for close dealing with them. third, a sinai clash on steroids. we saw in august of 2011, how the attempt by terrorists, the effort by the terrorists to kill the israelis triggered the reaction that ended up with the egypt and israel peace treaty being this far away from total collapse. i measured this as being the thickness on the door of the israeli embassy in cairo outside of which the protesters were banding down the door to attack the american -- the diplomats on the other side of the door. and that is when the military controlled egypt. today there is a different situation. another clash triggered by terrorists seeking to promote egypt, is
on energy and environment and education that the president had a vision for where america needs to be in this new century where we've got rising competition in china and germany and india and if we're going to have an american century we cannot come in second place to those countries in technology of the future. and i think that played an important role. there was a sense that the obama vision was one that they thought better suited this moment in our country's history. and there is no question on social issues whether it's women's healthcare or immigration. there was asset of issues that for younger voters was important to think about the kind of country and kind of president they wanted representing them. so on all those questions people wrestled carefully. i think that's why ultimately enough people in enough battleground states chose the president to continue this journey we're on. quickly in terms of demoggrafi. we don't know this for sure but we could be seeing different elections in on years and off years. the election in 2014 is going to be different than presidential le
